Illinois Turkey Season Opener

Avery:  "I'm on him!"
George:  "Shoot him!"
Avery:  "Cover my ears!"
Neighbors George and Sally dropped in the other day with their granddaughter and her First Turkey.  Here we see Grandpa George weighing the bird; 23.8 pounds.  That's a real gobbler, and Avery will remember that hunt for the rest of her life.  Avery was shooting her Grandma's 20 Gauge, with a load of 7/8 ounce of Number 6 shot.  The distance from their blind was 13 yards. Good Shooting, Avery!  Congratulations!
